Granite vs Laminate Countertops Surface Encounters Davisburg Stone Fabricator Explains
New kitchen countertops are a major investment in the home; so cost and durability are issues to consider when deciding which type of material is the best option
In considering cost with the granite vs laminate decision, laminate countertops often are cheaper and more readily available at local building supply companies. Professionally installed laminate countertops may cost a home owner between $25 and $50 per square foot. Granite countertops which are professionally installed can range from $50 to $100 dollars per square foot for a complete installation.
Surface Encounters answer to the cost factor in granite vs laminate is their half off granite countertops special. They are currently installing granite countertops for only $25.00 per square foot to make a new granite kitchen more affordable than ever.
The durability factor in the granite vs laminate decision applies mainly to the DIYer. For the do-it-yourselfer laminate sheets are readily available and easy to install for $5 to $10 dollars a square foot, however these laminates often have a short life span and will need to be replaced long before granite countertops. Granite countertops are considered a one-time investment when purchased from the professional installers at Surface Encounters (http://www.granitecountertopsdavisburg.com/).
Granite, a natural stone, is a very hard and durable material a reputation of lasting forever. It is stain resistant, heat tolerant and holds its natural luster indefinitely. “Granite often out lives the homeowner compared to laminates which are usually replaced every ten years,” notes one installer. Armed with this knowledge it becomes easy to see why granite countertops are the better value in the long run.
Consider this answer to the long-term cost factor of granite vs laminate countertops. If the cost of granite countertop installation ranges from $3500 to $5000 dollars and last a lifetime while a laminate countertop cost $1800 to $2500 but only lasts for 10 years, this means the homeowner will spend a third more on laminate countertops over thirty years of homeownership.
Along with the added expense of replacing laminate countertops numerous times, there is also the inconvenience of leaving one’s self with a kitchen or bathroom that is inoperable during the remodeling process. Often changing or updating countertops for an average kitchen can become a two or three week process depending on the contractor.
